We've been growing plants here in Devon for more than 30 years but don't be fooled into thinking that the climate will make our plants soft and tender; we are nearly 1000 feet above sea level on the edge of Dartmoor and in a 'normal' season would expect to get 45 inches of rain a year. Temperatures in the winter can fall to below -8 Centrigrade so we think it quite likely that most of our plants will go on to more favourable climes!
When the weather's too wet to get onto the garden but you're looking for something to do outside, why not plant up a shallow tub with early Spring flowering kabschia Saxifrages?
These little gems are sometimes overshadowed when planted in the border so growing them in a trough or tub is the ideal way to enjoy them. Their dainty flowers, which belie the hardiness of kabschia Saxifrages bring a welcome splash of colour to the dark wintery days. They are borne in clusters on short stems above hard cushions of spiny leaves. They come in several varieties with flowers in shades of pink, yellow or peach which appear from January onwards.
Shown here is Saxifraga 'Love Me' a variety introduced from the Czech Republic which has a mass of deep pink flowers in late winter.
